Barbell-FiorilloBarbellCo Thought of the Day!!!!


Barbell-FiorilloBarbellCo Thought of the Day!!!!

To me the Barbell is the Picasso of weightlifting. It’s seven feet of steel,usually chromed from end to end. Now before anyone starts to disagree with me on this subject I’m fully aware of stones,thick bars,dumbbells,Trap bars etc. I own many different bars and have or used them at one point or another and still do.

I have four York Olympic bars that have there place right in the FBC Stone and Steel Yard. I love the feel and the look of the York Bar when your getting ready to do a big Deadlift or Squat. Did you notice I didn’t say a word about Barbell Curls????  It’s an exceptional bar for that also.  It’s a great feeling to grab my York Squat stands toss them out in the driveway load my York Bar with some York bumper plates  and knock off some front squats. The feel of that bar on your shoulders is something only a lifter would know. The bar flexing, your tense body,the liveliness of the bumpers and bang you’re racking the weight.

There are few things in life that are that enjoyable.  A fellow lifter used to call this the war with the weights. I’ll take this a step further. I’ll call it the war with oneself. I feel like in one way or another you compete with yourself. This is how you gauge your next workout or pending competition . Have you ever watched a Clean and Jerk???? That bar bends just to deal with the applied force generated by the human body. If you blink you most likely missed the lift.

So the next time you go out to train take 10 seconds and just admire that seven foot gem you’re about to unleash upon the world. Admiration is everything and I do admire that bar.

Wait till I purchase my first Elieko Bar. Oh,that Swedish Steel!!! That will be for another time… Enjoy your Barbell!!!!

Night owls have higher risk of being overweight and at heart risk!!!!




People who keep late hours may elevate their risk of obesity and heart attack, a U.S. researcher says.

Giovanni Cizza of the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Md., says many in the United States don’t get enough sleep and weigh more than they should.

A study indicates people who stay up late, sleep too little and are obese also have signs that raise concern about potential heart attack risk.

Cizza analyzed data on 119 people who fit the categories of staying up late, sleeping too little and weighing more than they should.

The study, published in the journal Plos One, found those who stayed up late and lost sleep had higher resting heart rates and higher stress hormone levels.

“If you are an evening person, you tend to eat more, you tend to eat more fat than carbohydrate, and eat more often after 8 p.m,” Cizza said.

Alzheimers- Single Serving of Coconut Oil May Boost Brain Health, Reverse Alzheimer’s!!!!

Alzheimers- Single Serving of Coconut Oil May Boost Brain Health, Reverse Alzheimer’s!!!!

Perhaps you already know about the numerous health benefits of coconut oil, but were you aware that in as little as one daily serving, the medium chain triglycerides (MCT) or ‘healthy’ fats in coconut oil may start to repair slow neural pathways and improve cognitive functioning and memory? This is true for people of all ages, but especially in senior adults.

The connection between coconut oil and Alzheimer’s prevention and even reversal has been made stronger than ever, as evidenced in recent studies like the one published by the journal, Neurobiology of Aging.

Why Eat (Healthful) Fat?

While many people believe they should avoid fat altogether, medium chain fatty acids are vitally important for our health. They help to:

Prevent vitamin deficiency since many vitamins like vitamin D are only found in fatty parts of foods (good, not man-made fats, like hydrogenated and partially hydrogenated oils which have been tampered with by man) and are therefore called fat-soluble. This means your body can only absorb these vitamins by eating healthful fats.

Good fats can increase the bio-availability of fat-soluble nutrients needed for multiple tasks in a healthfully functioning body.

Good fats support both physical and physiological health in developing children, starting as early as during fetal development.

As we age, medium chain fatty acids can help prevent cognitive laziness and loss of memory.
